The 7th Annual GETI Fest is coming to Maple Ridge's Memorial Peace Park, on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
This year's theme is "Sustainable Community" and will highlight groups, organizations, and individuals that are involved in making our community a better place to live, work, and play.

This is the weekend that WildSafeBC encourages people to safely enjoy wildlife in the wilds. It is our hope that by emphasizing the fact the wildlife should be in the wilds - and not in our urban areas, that people will help us meet our goal of "keeping wildlife wild and communities safe." https://wildsafebc.com/bc-goes-wild-weekend/

Our "Bags in Bags" summer campaign has made a big difference to our Sorters at the Depot!
